Fantasy Fur

Rumi and I wore matching fantasy fur jackets from the Lanvin x H&M collaboration last night. We had dinner at the Waverly Inn.

Alber Elbaz and Moi

Alber Elbaz and Moi

After all these years, Alber and I finally met.

Alber Elbaz and Bryanboy

I shyly approached the maestro at the post-show private shopping event. All I wanted to do was to photograph him. However, the incredibly kind and gracious Alber insisted that I join him so I humbly asked one of the other chic ladies to take our photo.

I was surprised that he knows me. I was shocked when Alber told me he's kept track of how far I've come and how he's kept track of me from the earlier days of my blog. I don't know how I managed to stop myself from crying in front of him; I have always been a fan of Alber, his work and his undying love for the women who adore his creations. He creates not only fashion but dreams…

I saw him a few times throughout the shopping event. While queueing at the till, Alber was there again so I told him "look at what you're doing to people!", referring to the dozens and dozens of well-dressed fans and followers of his, going agog at the new Lanvin x H&M collection.

Alber, it truly is an honor meeting you. Thank you so much for making me (and thousands, if not millions of people) fall in love with fashion again and again and again…

Lanvin x H&M: The Fashion Show at The Pierre Hotel

Lanvin x H&M: The Fashion Show at The Pierre Hotel

As you know, I'm here in New York City. Last night's Lanvin x H&M extravaganza at the Pierre hotel was magical. It was a fun celebration; a celebration of love and fashion. Even my beloved Anna Dello Russo and fellow fashion lover Julia Frakes walked the show!

Thank you so much to H&M for making this collaboration happen. It's so wonderful to share the Lanvin dream to many people.

Bryanboy x Natasha Poly x Lanvin + H&M Parody

We originally thought of doing a Lanvin x H&M parody video but we gave up because of the poor lighting at the hallway of the Four Seasons hotel.

Maybe next time haha! ;-)

Lanvin x H&M: The Aftermath

After the Lanvin x H&M fashion show, my gurls Rumi, Elin and Gala went back to the Four Seasons Hotel to drop our purchases in our rooms. We went gaga over the spectacular Lanvin x H&M collaboration.

Are you ready to get your hands on the goods? Coming to an H&M store nearest you…

Fur vs Faux Fur (Lanvin vs Lanvin x H&M)

Fur vs Faux Fur (Lanvin vs Lanvin x H&M)

How desirable is the new Lanvin x H&M collaboration? Pretty desirable if you ask me.

Check out this gorgeous Mongolian goat fur jacket from Lanvin’s autumn/winter 2010 collection. It retails for approx. US$13,000. Now compare it to the Lanvin x H&M faux fur jacket which is slated to sell for about US$149.

I had to use the above visuals to explain to the boyfriend the importance of the Lanvin x H&M collaboration.

Are you dying? I am.

Lanvin for H&M: Highly Anticipated, Boyfriend Won’t Cooperate

05/11/2010, Fall Winter 2010, Fashion and Style, H&M, Lanvin

Lanvin for H&M: Highly Anticipated, Boyfriend Won’t Cooperate

Two words: HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED.

I jokingly asked my boyfriend how much he earns in a day so when the BIG day comes, he’ll take the day off (and I’ll pay his wages instead) and run to his nearest H&M store to buy a few things for me. But alas, he cringed at the idea of queueing with hoardes of girls for hours just to get me the pieces I want. Some kind of boyfriend he is…

I want all the t-shirts, the bags, ALL the accessories except for the women’s shoes, ALL the women’s jackets and coats and men’s shoes.

It’s going to be a bloodbath.

I need a plan for this. Seriously.

Lanvin Spring Summer 2011 Final Walkthrough Video

Here's the view from where I sat at the Lanvin spring/summer 2011 fashion show here in Paris.

People clapped when models of colour closed the show.

Truly amazing! In spite of me being a fan for years, it's the first time I went to Lanvin.

Everyone was raving and swooning with the new collection.

I almost had tears when I left the venue.
